asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange for publication of a periodical return showing the numbers of properties and acreage of land held by individual Government Departments.

Government Departments hold land and buildings for many different purposes, and on many different forms of tenure, and the compilation of such a return would involve very substantial cost and labour. But if there is any particular information within my sphere of responsibility which my hon. and gallant Friend desires on this subject, I will try to let him have it.
